Haunted Houses - Fort de Chartres

Fort de Chartres

What's the tale? The route between the ancient Fort de Chartres to the nearby cemetery on the 4th of July gives way to a phantom funeral procession. The original funeral occured on a Friday on the 4th of July. It can only be seen on a 4th of July that falls on a Friday between 11pm-12am has been witnessed by hundreds since its original procession in the mid 18th century. It was a procession for an aristocrat who was murdered and his murderers were never caught. The procession includes forty wagons followed by thirteen pairs of horsemen. Despite the large number not a single sound can be heard even though the hooves and wagon wheels kick up the dust of the earth around them and you can see the horsemen talking to each other. If you want to see the funeral procession here are the years when the 4th of July will fall on Fridays... 2014, 2025, 2031, 2042 and 2053... see the phantom funeral for yourself!

What do we know as fact? Very little. This is another story passed verbally which means there is probably factual basis in the haunting tale but it was lost over time.

Thoughts: It is rated "undecided" because we don't know where exactly the location is although I say we all gather along that route in 2014 and prove it one way or another.
